Growing up in New York in the '80's, Andrew Zimmerman's childhood goal was to be a rock star. He pursued music into his early 20's, supporting his dream by working in local restaurant kitchens. Over the years, he realized that he was a better cook than musician, and that his true calling was in the kitchen. He worked for nearly three years under Renato Sommelia, whom he cites as one of his strongest culinary mentors, and then enrolled in the prestigious French Culinary Institute. Zimmerman graduated first in his class in 2000 and never looked back.
After three years working on the East Coast, Zimmerman was ready to make a move. Drawn to Chicago by the abundance of world-class restaurants, he accepted a position at the Park Hyatt Chicago working alongside Sandro Gamba. In 2004, he met restaurateur Terry Alexander, who hired him as Executive Chef at MOD. From there, the duo opened widely acclaimed del Toro.
Zimmerman then returned to the Park Hyatt as the chef de cuisine at NoMI, working with Christophe David.

ANDREW ZIMMERMAN
SEPIA Since taking the culinary lead at Sepia in 2009, Chef Andrew Zimmerman has garnered national acclaim for his inventive American cuisine. His creative direction in the kitchen has earned the Chicago restaurant a Michelin star since 2011. Zimmerman was invited to cook at the James Beard House in New York City in 2010. He’s received a James Beard Foundation Award nomination for “Best Chef: Great Lakes� in 2012 and 2013, and StarChefs.com picked him as a 2011 Rising Star Chef. For the 2011-2013 Jean Banchet Awards, he was nominated as “Chef of the Year,� and Sepia won as “Restaurant of the Year� in 2012. “I’m cooking food that speaks to me, and I’m so honored that it’s resonating with others, too,� he says. “My cooking style is all about balance of textures, global flavors, and seasonality.�
In his 20s, while following a life-long dream to become a musician, Zimmerman supported himself by working in restaurants in New York City. When he realized he enjoyed being in the kitchen more than the clubs, Zimmerman began to pursue a career as a professional cook. He worked as sous chef for three years under Renato Sommella, whom he cites as one of his strongest culinary mentors. He then enrolled in the prestigious French Culinary Institute in New York City, graduating first in his class in 2000. Zimmerman made the move to Chicago in 2003 to assume a chef position at the Park Hyatt Chicago. In 2004, he met restaurateur Terry Alexander, who was impressed with his capabilities and hired him as executive chef at MOD and opening chef for del Toro. Zimmerman returned to the Park Hyatt as chef de cuisine at its restaurant, NoMI, working with Chef Christophe David.
